For 2009, Honda completely redesigned the Pilot, adding a little more cabin volume, legroom, horsepower and torque. The result is a family-size package that's leaner and more agile than the current crop of supersize SUVs. The all-wheel-drive model we drove now provides a 4,500-pound towing capacity, along with a heavy-duty cooling package, larger wheels and an integrated hitch. There's also an available backup camera. The gutsy 250 hp, 3.5-liter V-6 was able to drop a gear and bring a 4,000-pound load up some pretty steep Ozark hills without undue strain, and the brakes and suspension were also up to the task. Under lighter loads, the engine operates on three or four cylinders to boost mileage, and it thrives on regular-grade gasoline.
